The official rules state that each entry should be submitted only once, but there are no restrictions on the total number of recipe entries you can submit for this contest.
If your website entry is successfully submitted, you will see the following on the web site Thank You page: Thank you for your submission. You will be notified by January 13th if you qualify for Round 2. Good Luck!” If you do not see this message, your entry was not submitted.
All public social media posts that include a recipe picture or video along with the hashtag #BakeItPossible in the post will be considered for entry.
